Welcome The Great Brand Exchange News!
We are excited to launch our brand new news blog. This will be a platform to provide you with our latest updates, exciting features from guest brands, top tips and exclusive community content.
What do we do?
We help SME brands get a foot in the door at major retailers like John Lewis, Waitrose, Harvey Nichols and Boots, so they can showcase their products to consumers seeking innovative and quality goods.
We do this by creating exclusive retail experiences and opportunities like pop-up shops and large-scale shopping events where brands can benefit from high footfall, increased visibility, more sales and live customer feedback.
Not only that, but we also offer a complete wholesale/distribution model for brands aiming for a permanent listing in major retailers.
Why support small businesses?
Supporting small and independent businesses doesn’t just help a brand to flourish, it aids the local economy and contributes to local communities. Showcasing local people, with local talent and products with a story. We hope this is a way in which many customers will shop in the future.
The small independent business scene is full of support and care, with each business taking great pride in their brand’s achievements, no matter how small or large. There is genuine joy taken from each customer that engages with their business, no matter if they make a purchase or not. And if a customer does purchase, you are buying from a real person, you are receiving a personal service, buying a product with a story and supporting a dream.
Why Pop-Up Shops?
Our pop-ups are a great opportunity for new, growing and established businesses, giving a great platform to develop and grow.
The fantastic Yes B VIP, explained their pop-up experience:
“Without the GBE, I don’t think we would have had the platform to be able to host a pop-up in a large retailer. Our customers who came to see us said we looked like a totally different brand, really professional and like we completely fitted into the store.’
We are thrilled to have such a wonderful community of small and independent businesses and look forward to woking and growing together!
